MY WOMAN

If PJ Harvey (around the time of To Bring You My Love) was a likeable neighbour, she would be Angel Olsen. Still determined to make music, but not so keen to test your nerves.

Sure it's an easy analogy, with its gender link and all. But there's more to it. They share this knack for making music that's dead classic but still has this difference to it. Call it otherwordliness if you need to.

Paradoxically, its standout tracks—take 'Shut Up Kiss Me' as an example—almost hurt the impression of the album as a whole. As if they promise even more. As if it could have been the album of a century. It's not. But it's good.
